Spring clean with these 5 eco-friendly products

It's that time of year to move the furniture and clean deep in and around the corners of your house. Sometimes what is good for your home isn't good for the enviroment. Too many cleaning products contain unpredictable organic compounds (VOCs) which can harm you and your family when inhaled or touched. So why not replace some of those old cleaners for some new eco-friendly products. Check out the 5 eco-friendly products below that will help you get all your spring cleanning done.

 

1. Scratch Free Scrub Daddy (Pack of 4)

A soft sponge for gentle cleaning. Won't scratch wood, plastic, stainless steel, non-stick coatings or glass. Perfect for giving all your kitchen appliances a thorough cleaning.

 

2. Ecoegg Fragrance Free Laundry Egg

This is so easy to use and will help lighten your load (pun intended) during laundry. Jut put the Ecoegg Laundry Egg on top of your washing in the drum of your machine. It completely replaces washing powders, liquids, gels and tablets. Contains no harsh chemicals, hypoallergenic, dermatologically tested and not tested on animals. The Ecoegg lasts the average family of four for 1 year. After your first 210 washes, refills are available.

 

 

3. Method Daily Shower Spray

It's easy to feel good about singing in the shower when that shower is free of chemical residue. With this shower spray you'll never have to scrub, wipe or rinse your shower again. Just spray a fine mist on all wet surfaces after each shower and it will take care of the rest.

 

 

4. Pumie Toilet Bowl Ring Remover TBR-6

The thing I dread cleaning the most is the toliet bowl, but the Pumie makes it easy by erasing toilet bowl rings in seconds. It is a pumice rubbing stone that rids toilets of rust and lime buildup when chemicals quit. Won't harm porcelain bowls and is reusable.

 

5. Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day Multi-Surface Everyday Cleaner, Lavender

A multi-surface cleaner is a big part of my spring cleaning. I love a product I can use on multiple surfaces instead of switching on and off making for less clutter when stored too. This cleaner takes the basic formula of our all purpose cleaner and adds a special vegetable protein extract, a fresh way getting rid of kitchen messes and bathroom odors. Just spray it on all non-porous surfaces like finished wood and tile floors, countertops, walls, porcelain, bathroom fixtures, sealed stone and granite and simply wipe away.
